The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

"Inspired in equal measures, by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, 'Morris Lessmore' is a story of people who devote their lives to books and books who return the favor. The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore is a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of story. Using a variety of techniques (miniatures, computer animation, 2D animation), award–winning author/illustrator William Joyce and Co–director Brandon Oldenburg present a hybrid style of animation that harkens back to silent films and M–G–M Technicolor musicals. 'Morris Lessmore' is old–fashioned and cutting edge at the same time."

YouTube TV Shows and Movie Channels

"In a move that's obviously a shot across the bow of Hulu, YouTube has announced that visitors can now view 'thousands of television episodes and hundreds of movies' instantly through the site from partners like Crackle, CBS, MGM, Lionsgate, and Starz. Visitors can access the TV show and movie content via the site's newly added Shows menu tab. In addition, YouTube members can subscribe to partner channels to be notified of any newly added content."
(Alexander Grundner, 20 April 2009)

[This must inevitably undermine the efforts of 'old media' to close the gap between broadcast and online distribution.]

Impeding Innovation Through Copyright Liability Decision

Jason Schultz (Electronic Frontier Foundation)
[The June 27, 2005 American] Supreme Court issued a ruling that could impede makers of all kinds of technologies with expensive lawsuits. The long–awaited decision in MGM v. Grokster states that P2P software manufacturers can be held liable for the infringing activities of people who use their software. This decision relies on a new theory of copyright liability that measures whether manufacturers created their wares with the "intent" of inducing consumers to infringe. It means that inventors and entrepreneurs will not only bear the costs of bringing new products to market, but also the costs of lawsuits if consumers start using their products for illegal purposes.
